Every year, the French Ministry of Culture puts on an enchanting weekend of events in the gardens throughout France. In 2017, the event is scheduled for June 2nd-4th, in more than 2300 parks and gardens and includes guided visits, exhibitions, workshops, meetings and demonstrations... We love it!
The annual “Rendez-vous aux Jardins,” meaning “Rendezvous in the Gardens,” is a time to discover or rediscover the parks, gardens and vegetable gardens in our regions. So what would you say to a little stroll in the greenery on June 2nd, 3rd and 4th, 2017?
For three days, more than 2300 parks and gardens will be open to the public, 500 of those open exceptionally, putting on over 4000 public events throughout France. It’s the perfect opportunity to discover outdoor spaces that are usually closed to the public.
This year, the theme is "Sharing in the Garden", highlighting gardeners', owners' and kids' knowledge and know-how. Kids will enjoy numerous gardening workshops, and skill demonstrations!
